How long have you lived in Forbes and what do you like about living here?
Since 1978… nearly 40 years. I love Forbes (except for the heat) for the ease of driving around without too much traffic and finding parking easily; walking around Lake Forbes; our medical services; head- ing to the supermarket for bread and milk and walking out an hour later with a full trolley because I ran into so many people I know; and the genuine concern people have for each other.
Where do you work and what do you enjoy most about your work?
I work at Catholic Healthcare Jemalong Residential Village (JRV). I love all the different personalities that help make our unique culture. There is a lot of laughter in our corridors, and yes there are sad times, however they are special for those who live at JRV and the family and friends who visit. I truly love being able to meet people when they are in human need.
What do you do to unwind after work and on weekends?
Time with family and friends, road tripping and researching with Mr Google for new travel destinations.
If you could have a super power, what would it be?
That is a no brainer! Through faith I am strong in God’s mighty power.
What is your pet hate? Snoring! Other people snoring! I don’t snore, at least I have never heard myself snore. Another one is slamming doors!
Tell us about your best holiday ever.
My best and most memorable holiday was to Antarctica. We sailed for 22 days and had 32 landings and crossed Drake Passage, the worst ocean crossing in the world. I will never forget the ice-covered mountain peaks, the iceberg crystal cit- ies, the storms, whales, the hundreds of thousands of penguins, the isolation – it all took my breath away.
